Coming Home 

Kudos to The Nightfly for letting loose Castpost.com upon the community. It's not just a cool tool. I've had a couple of problems (due to cranial malfunctions) getting it going and the staff at the help forum have been extremely responsive. Enlighten-NJ and others have been having fun with it so I use it to make my offering today.

Soon after the fall of Communism, the cellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich marked his return to Russia after a long exile with a concert. At the end he offered his thanks to his adoptive country by leading the National Symphony of Washington, D.C. in The Stars and Stripes Forever. It's the best recording of it I ever heard. Listen to the Russkies stomp and cheer. This was when we loved them, they loved us and everything was going to be all right. I tried to post this a few months ago, but it didn't really work. Like everything on the web, you don't have to wait too long for the right tool to come along.
